Connecticut Riverbank, orig. watercolor © Debra Argosy. This painting was stolen from the Seamen’s Inne in Mystic, Connecticut where it was on loan around 1993. The owners of the restaurant at the time were very uncooperative in helping me track it down—they wouldn’t even speak to me on the phone. I didn’t even know it was missing. I had a buyer for it and when I called to get it back I learned it was gone. It was a large painting, 24 x 36. Haven’t seen it since.

  1. You are an incredible artist! I’m so inspired and had to comment. So amazing! You made my day a little brighter!

  2. Love your artwork D. I wish I had that talent. I wish I had any talent actually 🙂

  3. Thank you B…but we all know of your talents in fine writing, sane and reasonable opinions, and knowing exactly how to communicate with demented commenters!

  4. OMG, such beautiful paintings. From the flowers to the “plumber nightmare”, so good. I should have explored your site before.

  5. Thanks Francis. A couple days ago I gave away two prints to an older woman who has absolutely no money but has done more for animals in this town than most people do in a lifetime. Her delight pleased me immeasurably.

  6. WOW. You have such amazing talent. I love all your artwork. Your attention to detail is wonderful. I am so glad I took a peek.

  7. Thank you Char. I have never had much luck marketing them, I’m not good at that part. I can’t tell you how many shows I’ve sat through, chatting pleasantly with people who don’t buy, and going home with my paintings and a headache. I kind of gave up, but still do dictionary illustrations, which I love because they demand accuracy and detail, perfect for an OCD like me.

  8. Lovely paintings. My fave is the one with the taps (faucets? Pipework?) Ancient One, and I find it strange that I like it so much as it’s not my usual sort of subject matter to enjoy! But it has a lovely quality to it.

    • Hi Val, would you believe that painting is of the gauges of an old steamroller they built the railroads with way back. I lived right near it back in Connecticut. I miss trains, none around here, though there sure used to be back in the mining days. Thanks for looking!

  9. What great artwork and subjects!

    • Hi Alan, thanks. I’m not that motivated to paint anymore unless it’s a commissioned piece, like the dictionary illustrations. Way too hard to sell artwork. I have too many of them stacked against walls in my house. Wish I could find good homes for all of them!

  10. raw talent!! That’s how I want my watercolours to look.

  11. Did you take art lessons? Your art is beautiful. I am on a journey to myself in my 6th decade of life. I just bought a book on drawing, and some pencils. It has been sitting on my desk. I am trying to figure out how I approach myself through art. Beautiful blog.

    • Hi Livvy, thank you. I took art classes briefly but am mostly self-taught. I don’t do it anymore now unless it’s a commission, it’s too depressing trying to sell art, and my paintings are stacked up everywhere around the house. Thanks for writing, and good luck with your new set of pencils…my favorite medium. Get one of those “stumps,” it’s a tightly rolled paper device in the shape of a pencil for blending. It’s the most fun you can have with a pencil!
